So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Summer Swap with Brick Wall

This is for the Summer Swap at Speedy TV. It was to be something that reminds you of summer -- I think flowers, bees, butterflies, dragonflies fit the description!  I used Mark's Finest stamps Brick Wall and had a fun time creating these 4 cards.  I used GKD kraft and green cs with DCWV Green Stack recycled paper dp. First I stamped the brick wall and then embossed it with black detail embossing powder and cut it out with rectangles by Spellbinders. Then stamped the flowers on white cs and cut it out with Labels 14 Spellbinders and colored with Smooch. The sentiment was green lime embossing powder and cut out with
Fancy Tags 2 Spellbinders. The butterfly was colored with Smooch and cutout with labels 19. Then sponged some yellow ink on the flower label and aqua and lime ink on the butterfly label. Added some ribbon, brads, bow and a sticker. I used the Crop A Dile corner Chomper cloud and scallop and they are ready to go in the mail. I am looking forward to see what others have made and will look forward to receiving my pack of 3 cards in August.
This is the front

This is the inside

Here are all 4.
